Default TurncrafterPro lathe question

anybody have any idea why the motor on this lathe would just stop working? Any input would be much appreciated.
Thanks,
Chief Murph

My guess would be a bad ground/loose wire. If the motor was burnt out you would most likely be able to smell it.

There are two possibilities with that particular lathe, first, the brushes can get isolated with saw dust... blow some compressed air into the cooling slots and try it... the VS model has had some issues witht he VS control itself... the first one i had lasted about month.. the replacement has lasted over 3 years...
